How to take down the reporter
Once you’ve dealt with the FBI Operation in Staunton Island, return to Asuka’s Home and you’ll find a letter waiting for you. Upon reading it you’ll discover that she’s currently away with Maria, but there’s a reporter getting too involved with the Yakuza and wants you to eliminate him.
Head down to the dock a press Triangle/Y to commandeer the Police Boat, then follow the marked speed boat and once you get close enough hold L1/LB to fire upon it. After the damage bar on the right side of your screen reaches the end it’ll explode and the mission will come to a close.
